Nothing about Helldivers 2’s newest assault rifle makes any sense



Spread the love

It’s one of my favorite times of the month: new Helldivers 2 warbond day. After a community vote that went overwhelmingly in favor of no delay, Arrowhead released the Polar Patriots premium warbond today, adding four new guns and other goodies to its rapidly-expanding co-op shooter.

You can unlock the items on the warbond’s first page in any order, but I suspect most people will go straight for the shiny new assault rifle: the AR-61 Tenderizer. It’s another boxy bullpup design that evokes the AR-23 Liberator starter rifle, but interestingly, it’s not an official variant of it. No, the Tenderizer is its own gun, complete with a bassy roar and a top rail that is the closest Helldivers 2 has inched toward the M41A Pulse Rifle from the Alien series. (Side note: The gun is supposed to be black like in the warbond trailer, but a texture bug made it green. Arrowhead says a fix is coming).
